Callaway X Hot Driver

X Hot and X Hot Pro Drivers

Most major equipment companies offer at least two drivers in their new product lineups. There’s usually a larger, more forgiving model aimed at average golfers and a more compact model with lower-spin characteristics for players who have more swing speed.

Along with Callaway’s RAZR Fit Xtreme driver, Callaway is releasing its X Hot and X Hot Tour drivers for 2013, which take individualization a step further. Not only was each head made specifically for a certain type of player — each loft was engineered with a specific player in mind as well.

The X Hot is the most forgiving driver of the pair. At 460cc, it is 20cc larger than the Pro version. It’s also 14 grams lighter than the Pro, which could allow slower swing-speed players to increase clubhead speed.

Dr. Alan Hocknell, vice president of R&D for Callaway, said data from Callaway’s fit bays across the country showed that most golfers who need more loft also need more draw bias, which is why the X Hot and X Hot Pro drivers have center of gravities that move toward the heel as the lofts increase, helping golfers square the club at impact. That draw bias is more severe in the X Hot driver line than it is in the X Hot Pro drivers, which are aimed at players who need less help squaring up the club face.

The X Hot Pro driver features a smaller head (440cc), with a deeper face that helps golfers reduce the spin on their tee shots. Unlike the X Hot, the X Hot Pro driver does not have any alignment markings on the crown, providing a clean at Callaway’s new dark grey matte finish.

Both all-titanium drivers use Callaway’s Forged Cup Face design, which Callaway says leads to high ball speeds across the face, and are adjustable with Callaway’s Opti-Fit Hosel System.

Face angle and loft

The X Hot driver is designed to have a square face angle in its neutral setting. Setting the face angle to the open (O) position on the Opti-Fit Hosel will open the face to 2.5 degrees and subtract 1 degree of loft. A change to the closed (C) setting will set the face 1.5-degrees closed and increase loft 1 degree.

The X Hot Pro driver is designed to have a face that is 0.5-degrees open in neutral. Setting the face angle to the open (O) position on the Opti-Fit Hosel will open the face to 3.5 degrees and subtract 1 degree of loft. A change to the closed (C) setting will set the face 1-degree closed and increase loft 1 degree.

Specs

The X Hot is available is lofts of 9.5, 10.5, 11.5 and 13 degrees. It comes stock with a proprietary True Temper Project X Velocity shaft in light, regular and stiff flexes. The standard length is 46 inches with a swing weight of D3.

The X Hot Pro is available in 9, 10.5 and 12 degree lofts, and comes stock with a “real deal” Project X Velocity shaft in the following flexes: 5.5 (64 grams — 4.6 degrees of torque), 6.0 (65.1 grams — 4.7 degrees of torque) and 6.5 (76 grams — 4.0 degrees of torque). The standard length is 45.75 with a swing weight of D3.

Fairway Woods

Callaway’s X Hot and X Hot Pro fairway woods look much like the company’s previous fairway woods, but changes to materials and construction make them top-tier performers.

The new fairway woods borrow the forged cup face design from Callaway drivers, which moved the weld line away from the face to allow Callaway more control over face thickness and tolerances. They also employ 455 Carpenter steel faces, which paved the way for faces to be constructed as thin as 0.047 inches in certain areas, 40 percent thinner than the previous RAZR X Black fairway woods.

These changes give X Hot and X Hot Pro fairway woods performance that is near the USGA limit without having to increase the size of the clubhead or add a slot to the sole or crown of the club.

“The reason we didn’t want to add a slot to the front of the sole is because the weight we would be removing is in a pretty good place,” said Evan Gibbs, manager of performance analysis and club configuration for Callaway. “We also wanted to keep it small so it would have the versatility and functionality of a true fairway wood.”

[youtube id=”Zp3K5rQcgck” width=”600″ height=”350″]

Both fairway woods have what Callaway calls dynamic weight projection, a structure with a “weight” that hangs over the cup face (shown in the video above) and moves the CG in the fairway woods lower and further forward, optimizing launch angle and spin.

The X Hot Pro has a more forward and CG than the standard model, giving it a flatter trajectory with less spin. It also has more camber and less offset for more versitility. Both models feature a modern version of Callaway’s warbird sole for enhanced turf interaction from less-than desirable lies.

Specs

The X Hot comes in lofts of 15, 17, 19, 21, 23 and 25 degrees, and is available with a proprietary Project X Velocity shaft in light, regular and stiff flexes. The standard length is 43.5 inches (3 wood) with a standard swing weight of D3.

The X Hot Pro comes in lofts of 13.5, 15, 17 and 19 degrees, and is available with a “real deal” True Temper Project X Velocity shaft in the following flexes: 5.5 (70 grams — 5 degrees of torque), 6.0 (74 grams — 5 degrees of torque) and 6.5 (75 grams — 5 degrees of torque). The standard length is 43 inches (3 wood) with a swing weight of D3.

The X Hot fairway woods have a square face angle, while the X Hot Pro fairway woods will sit 1-degree open at address.

    Here with some features of the Callaway X Hot Driver
    1.Technology; Hosel adjusts the face angle in Open, Square or Closed positions to improve accuracy and trajectory, and allows golfers to dial in their preferred look at address

    2.Speed Frame Face Technology; A combination of VFT and Hyperbolic Face Technology creates a larger sweet spot and increases ball speeds across the steel face for longer, more consistent distance

    3.Thinnest casting technology ever creates a lighter overall configuration to promote more distance; Draw Bias Progression changes the amount of draw bias depending on the loft, which allows golfers to better fine tune their shot shape

    I’ll never give up my Cally Diablo Octane. The X-Hot is cut from the same cloth so to speak. I tried the X-Hot when it came out, it felt the same as the Diablo to me, with the same result, as far as carry and overall distance. Cannot hit a stiff shafted driver-feels like swinging a 2×4-I’ll stick with reg. flex, thank you very much. (80 mph SS). Tried both the tour Diablo, and the X-Hot Pro-not for me.

    Just like to add my opinion here. Today I received my X-Hot Fairway 3 & 5 woods, I couldn’t stand it any longer. I bought my X-Hot Driver in late May and I will say that changing from my Taylor Made Superfast was quite a difference. I saw at least 15 yards on my drives and while trying to figure out closed or straight I was getting improved accuracy from the tee. I have a much better percentage of fairways hit now, and since changing my shaft to a UST MP4 I’m getting another 10 yards per drive. At 58 years old I can stay with those in the 40s and I’m looking forward to hitting these new fairway woods and getting my 2nd shot into those par 5s on the green. Callaway has made some great improvements that I found to be very helpful to average player, my only suggestion would be a bigger selection of shafts.

    Spent an hour or so getting driver fitted yesterday. Hit the Titleist 913 D2, Ping Anser, Callaway X Hot and Razor Fit Xtreme as well as a couple others who I don’t include because they didn’t have the available loft/shaft mix I wanted to try. Anyway, the Callaway and Anser were the best fits for me. I preferred the Xtreme to the X Hot both in performance and looks. The longer shaft of the X Hot didn’t appeal to me where as the Xtreme felt like an extension of my left arm. I know higher lofts are “in” but my slightly upright swing produces best with the 8.5 to 9.5 lofts. Perhaps flatter swings will do better with the higher lofts. The Callaway rep was trying to build excitement for the X Hot but the Xtreme was both more accurate and longer for me. Not to mention that the gray shaft/ head of the X Hot is unattractive. He also stressed that the color combos for the Xtreme can be ordered custom so those that don’t like green can do their own thing.

    I got fitted for irons today and it came down to callaway X Hot and Adams Super S. I can tell you the Callaway’s are called HOT for a reason! Because the ball is HOT off the club face. I was hitting the hybrid 3 iron 225, 231, and 238 yards. I’m a 18 handicap golfer with a 100 to 105mph swing speed. I cant imagine what I could do with the fairway woods or driver! Both clubs were very very comparable. I was a little more accurate with the Adams but not by much. Yet, I had much more distance with the Callaways. I have still yet to decide but I’m a fan!

    I didnt get a chance to hit xhot driver but the 3 wood is awesome..It was 15-20 yrds farther than my rbz 13.5tour.. and it was only the 15 deg not even the 13.5 calli.. i cant wait to see the real world yrd not on a screen. all i know is how far i hit my rbz 3 and xhot was wayyyy easier for me to hit farther… oh yeah for sale rbz 13.5 used 1 season lol

    Just hit this along with the TM R1 and new RazorFit XTREME and the XHOT came out on top.

    They were all stiff shafts but obviously slightly different probably with weight, torque and kick point etc . . .

    But like I say, consistent bombs with the Grey finished XHOT. PERFORMANCE ALWAYS COMES FIRST! I put it down to the shaft though, suited MY SWING BETTER!

    I think these drivers / fairway woods look nice. I haven’t played any callaway equipment since the FT-5. I bought the tour version of the rockeballz driver , 3 wood and 3 hybrid last year. I don’t like the white heads but they perform well for my swing. I wish they looked like these clubs.

    Fairway Cally X Hot Pro 3 wood with 1 degree open face and
    PX 5.5 looks great for me! Black paint view at Address is wicked!
    Like an i20…… My Razr Hawk 13.5 may get traded in….
    Hope they are truly a D3 swingweight, my Razr Hawk is under D 1
    as delivered. Go Callaway!!

    You heard it here first! The best drivers of 2013 are (in alphabetical order): Adams Speedline Super S and LS, Callaway X-Hot and X-Hot Pro, and Nike VR_S Covert and Covert Tour! We are talking performance here, not hype or looks.

    They should have included a weight port for swing weight adjustments

      Try the Razr Fit Xtreme if you are looking for moveable weights…

      Callaway has started to comeback after TM controlling the market for a few years.

    well they cant be any worse than the razr fit FW range imho….so easier to get airborne presumably….not a big fan of the TM R11 range..feel dead in the head to me…..so be curious to see how these fly…..

    Not sure what Andy means by out of sync and tacky colors. They are Black, red, and white. If I am not mistaken, the same colors as his R11? I don’t think they are running away from the industry, it’s just that everyone is doing something unique now. Who is the new standard? Taylormade with a white head, Cobra with multi-colored heads, Ping has black, Titleist has Black. If anything, it’s Taylormade that has been running away from the industry. They just have a bigger marketing budget to pay tour pros to use the driver which drives product sales.

      This is only my opinion, but these clubs look awful. Dull crowns and underneath the design looks cheap and tacky. I’d love to see Callaway coming back at the market leader, but I see these clubs as setting them even further behind.

      This years most talked-about and anticipated designs are the polar opposite of these . TM, Cobra and Nike are all going to be taking market share away from Callaway. Even in terms of marketing and publicity they are bad news because all the others are instantly recognisable on TV, whereas these are very nondescript.

        Jan 16, 2013 at 3:10 pm

        Face it man, you’re mad because callaways new drivers maintain the classy and clean look rather than selling out and making a red driver (nike) a rainbow of drivers (cobra) or a god damn race car driver (taylormade).

        to me, these look great. and from the way they are being reviewed, i anticipate them to be the driver i buy this year. GO CALLAWAY

          I hit the XHot today and it performed better than Titleist 913, Nike and TM. Both models are really good. Preordered mine this afternoon.

            Jun 24, 2013 at 7:50 am

            I tested Taylor made RBZ and R11, Ping G20 and G25 and then just out of interest tried the Calloway X hot.
            Not only did it sit squarely at address but it was easily 20-30 yards further every time and direction was good too.
            The crown may be dull grey but aren’t we supposed to look at the ball whilst swinging, rather than the club head?
            I took it to the range yesterday and was blon away by the carry. Can’t wait to unleash it on the course…….

    I like what they have done here. Like any club I try its more about performance than the look. So i cant wait to try theses out. The new TM stuff is too out there for me so I am glad there are a few simple designs (especially) on the crowns out there. Love the look of the pro versions as well as the new razr forged irons and the Xtreme driver.

    Pro is the best looking driver Callaway has produced! And the 3 wood looks sweet as well!

  20. Andy

    Jan 4, 2013 at 8:11 am

    To me these just look so wrong, and so out of sync with where the rest of the golfing world is going. It’s like Callaway are deliberately trying to run away from everything happening in the industry. Not only dull colours but tacky too.

    I’ve had 3 sets of irons from Callaway and 2 Drivers, but right now they are a million miles away from the R11 I currently use. I can’t see me buying anything from them for a long time if these clubs are anything to go by.

        You may not like the color but I would tell you atleast try he xhot 3 wood and see what you think. I cant tell you how fast im trying to get rid of my rbz 13.5 3 wood to pic this 3 wood up. 15 dg calli was 15 or so yrd fartehr than rbz 13.5.. ball flies off this club.not sure about xhot drivers..

      Why do you really care what colour it is? This is the most ridiculous point I have seen in a while if it gets me 30 yards I wouldn’t care if it was modeled to look like a turd.

      I disagree, the New line of Callaway drivers are great, taylormade is way to overrated and sucks in my opinion Andy.

    Aesthetically speaking, the muted, flat finish on the crown is a step in the right direction in my book.

      I was at Golf Galaxy yesterday watching a guy testing several new drivers. He kept getting 220-225 until he hit the Cally X-hot 2013 driver, all of the sudden he got 250-260 according to the simulator. I could not believe my own eyes… How could it be? that means he has increased SS by approx 10 mph, how could it be ???

Titleist launches new U505 utility and T200 long irons

Published

on

Titleist has introduced its new U505 utility and T200 long irons, which are available for fittings today and will hit retail on August 26.

The new U505 utility irons and T200 long irons from Titleist will offer players seven new opportunities for golfers looking to increase launch and spin from their utility and long irons, including four options in the new U505 model and three irons from the new T200 family.

Note: This is the tour U505. The retail version doesn’t have the hotmelt port.

“The new U•505 is the direct result of tour player feedback of the originalU•500 and U•510utility irons. The U•505 combines the best of both, and the result is our highest performing and most playable utility iron yet. The new T200 long irons offer similar high launch and speed with the look and feel of an iron set at the top of the bag.” – Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Club Marketing

2021 Titleist U•505 utility: ‘The Players Utility Irons’

The new U•505 utility iron from Titleist is a wide-soled, high-launching club designed for the player looking to increase launch and speed from their long irons with a faster face.

With a thinner forged L-Face and the infusion of Max Impact Technology (Max Impact 2.0), the U•505 is Titleist’s highest COR utility iron ever.

The club features a new reconfigured hollow body, core support structure, and enhanced high resilience polymer core in design to ensure that dynamic speed generation now comes with a superior feel and sound.

Utilizing Denser D18 tungsten weights and a brazing process used in aerospace construction, Titleist engineers could concentrate weight more efficiently and be even more precise with CG placement. In the U•505 utility iron, that meant sliding it lower and towards the heel, where according to the company, tour pros and better players felt it improved launch dynamics the most.

The U•505 was designed with a shorter blade and shallow face but kept the wide sole to maintain all of the performance advantages of its predecessors while moving towards a look that feels more in line with an irons set.

Specs & Pricing

The new Titleist U•505 utility irons are priced at $249 (HZRDUS shaft) per club.

2021 Titleist T200 long irons: ‘Performance and Technology’

The new T200 long irons are designed for the better player looking for long irons to increase launch and speed at the top of their bag.

The improved Max Impact Technology in the new long irons from Titleist includes a core support design and an enhanced high resilience polymer core designed to improve both off-center speed and mass efficiency at impact across a forged, high COR SUP-10 L-Face Insert.

An engineered muscle plate contributes to precision sound tuning and saves weight which is optimized in a streamlined 17-4 chassis.

The retail version doesn’t have the hotmelt port.

The T200 long irons also feature a shorter blade length, less offset (same as the new T100), narrower topline and thinner sole. The combination of all of this is in design to provide long irons with a tour-inspired look and feel while delivering maximum speed and distance.

In addition, the long irons utilize denser D18 tungsten weights, which seek to provide greater mass efficiency, while also allowing Titleist engineers to position the CG more precisely in design for faster, more forgiving, and higher launching long irons.

Specs & Pricing

The new Titleist T200 long irons are priced at $249 (Project X HZRDUS shaft).

Titleist introduces next-generation T-Series irons

Published

on

After much anticipation since tour seeding started in June, Titleist has introduced its latest iteration of the T100 iron with four models: 2021 T100, T100S, T200, and T300, coming to retail on August 26.

The new T-Series iron family features new materials, processes, and refinements designed to provide exacting precision, performance, and unmatched feel, with a model for every golfer’s needs, according to the company. 

“The new T-Series irons represent another step forward in Titleist iron design and technology. With these new irons, across the board, every detail matters. They provide the best precision and performance in their respective iron category with stunning aesthetics and feel. Golfers don’t buy an iron ‘line’, they want specialization, and that’s what each of these models offer.” – Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Club Marketing

2021 Titleist T100 iron: ‘The Modern Tour Iron’

The “player’s iron” of the new family, the T100 iron features an all-new Tour-designed sole, which was inspired by discussions with both the tour staff and the Vokey wedge design team. It features a new variable bounce sole design, which provides less bounce in the heel and more bounce in the toe to facilitate better turf interaction and improved feel.

The new T100 face features a continuous cradle construction that aims to provide a seamless striking surface and a more uniform leading edge than its predecessor.

A fully forged, dual cavity supports the face construction, and the faces on the 3-7 irons have been redesigned to impart slightly more spin for improved shot-shaping and increased control. The 8-PW are forged with one-piece 1025 carbon steel.

In addition, by utilizing a denser version of tungsten (D18) weights in the heel and toe of the 3-7 irons for greater mass efficiency and a brazing process used in aerospace construction, Titleist engineers were able to eliminate weld points and be even more precise with CG placement to produce the highest MOI in a “players iron.’

Jordan Spieth put the new T100 irons (4-9) in his bag earlier this month at The Open Championship, and speaking on the new clubs said

“The sole just glides through the ground so nicely. With the added bounce off the toe and the reduced bounce in the heel similar to the wedges that we have on those grinds, it just allows for some consistency when you get a little bit off. The idea that you can be on uneven lies and have it kind of make up for that, and then if you get in the rough and have it not drag as much, but instead slide through just as easily, that’s where we see the improvement in these irons.”

Jessica Korda is another high profile player to put the T100 irons (5-9) into play recently as well as a T200 4-iron, and said on the new irons from Titleist:

“They’re just really pure. It’s like I’m hitting blades, but you’re not. I loved how solid they felt. The height on them is incredible. It’s exactly what I’m looking for, especially in the longer irons.

“The consistency is what I look for. Because when I’m standing over the ball and I need this thing to travel a number that I have in my head, and I can rely on that and just be like, just make a good swing, it takes so much of the guesswork out of it and it makes you commit to the shot more. I don’t change often. It has to beat what I have, and this is really nice. To be even better, to help me hold greens like I need to with the longer irons, especially going into par fives, it’s really, really nice.”

Specs & Pricing

The new Titleist T100 irons are priced at $186 per club and $1,299 per 7-piece set (steel).

2021 Titleist T100S irons: ‘The Faster Tour Iron’

Aimed at players who want the feel of a tour iron but who want added distance, the new T100S head dimensions exactly match the specs of the T100, except for being engineered – not bent – two degrees stronger.

The iron also features the same fully forged face, backed by an innovative Muscle Channel designed to add both speed and launch. 

Like the T100, the new T100S face features a continuous cradle construction designed to create a seamless striking surface and a more uniform leading edge.

A fully forged, dual cavity supports the face construction, with the 3-7 iron faces redesigned to impart slightly more spin for improved shot-shaping and increased control, while the 8-W are forged with one-piece 1025 carbon steel.

In addition, utilizing denser D18 tungsten weights and a brazing process used in aerospace construction, the T100S irons feature the exact precise CG calibration as the T100 irons.

Weight savings from the Muscle Channel are shifted to produce even lower CG and higher launch, resulting in improved MOI and increased ball speed from a solid, fully forged design.

“The uniqueness of the T100•S comes from the fact that we engineered the 2* stronger loft into the iron rather than just bend them. The reason for this is to keep the integrity of the sole and optimize its performance through the turf. That would be lost by simply bending a T100.

“In addition, the ‘S’ represents ‘speed’ and the new Muscle Channel delivers it through the long and mid irons by providing longer distance, tighter dispersion and higher angle of descent for greater consistency and scoring opportunities. It has the same look and feel of the T100 but longer flight for those who want it.” – Marni Ines, Director, Titleist Irons Development, Golf Club R&D

Specs & Pricing

The new Titleist T100S irons are priced at $186 per club and $1,299 per 7-piece set (steel).

2021 Titleist T200 irons: ‘The Tour’s Distance Iron’

The retail T200 doesn’t have the hotmelt port pictured on the tour version.

With 10 different patents utilized, Titleist is calling its new T200 iron its most advanced iron ever.

The improved Max Impact Technology (Max Impact 2.0) in the T200 iron now includes a core support design and an enhanced high resilience polymer core designed to improve both off-center speed and mass efficiency at impact across a forged, high COR SUP-10 L-Face Insert.

An engineered muscle plate seeks to contribute to precision sound tuning and saves weight, which is optimized in the new, streamlined 17-4 chassis.

A shorter blade length, less offset (same as T100), narrower topline and thinner sole provides a tour-inspired look and feel while still aiming to provide maximum speed and distance.

As with the other clubs in the T-series family, Titleist utilized denser D18 tungsten weights in the 3-7 irons of the T200 irons for greater mass efficiency and a brazing process used in aerospace construction allowed engineers to position the CG more precisely for maximum benefit in every club.

“Many golfers want the benefit of advanced technology in an iron –and the T200 is our most advanced iron yet – but they don’t necessarily want to see it. All of that ‘Max Impact’ technology-and more-is now ‘under the hood’ in the new T200, so it looks and feels like a Tour-played iron but has the game improvement qualities preferred or required by this golfer.

“With the evolution of Max Impact, we were able to include an Engineered Muscle Plate that allowed us to free up weight and add lightweight polymer and over 100g of high-density tungsten to the design. The result was extremely high MOI properties at Tour inspired blade lengths which allows the iron face to return more energy to the golf ball on off center shots and produce tighter dispersion and more consistent distance.” – Marni Ines, Director, Titleist Irons Development, Golf Club R&D

The new Titleist T200 irons are priced at $186 per club and $1,299 per 7-piece set (steel).

2021 Titleist T300 irons: ‘The Ultimate Game Improvement Iron’

Aimed at those seeking high launch along with long-distance and forgiveness, the new T300 iron features Max Impact technology which seeks to maximize speed across a new variable face thickness (VFT) design.

The Max Impact 2.0 technology in the T300 irons is hidden under the badge. A cantilever core support structure features a new high resilience polymer core in design to deliver maximum speed and distance control.

The T300 now employs a High COR Variable Face Design that is thinner towards the heel in the long and mid irons to improve performance at what is traditionally one of the least effective strike points.

The high-density tungsten (D18) weights are utilized in the heel and toe of the 4-7 irons for greater mass efficiency. In addition, Titleist engineers were able to add 40 percent more tungsten than was in the previous generation T300 through a brazing process applied from aerospace construction usually reserved for Tour-played irons.

The size and shape of the T300 is designed to provide confidence, while a new chrome-plated finish offers a premium look.

“The T300 is the ultimate Titleist game improvement iron. It is for the golfer who wants high launch, long distance and forgiveness, and wants to see the technology they are using. This model utilizes the Max Impact 2.0 technology which is featured in a sleek, clean package at addres sfor which Titleist irons are known.

The design team retained the offset, shape and size, but was able to add 40 percent more tungsten to this iron, precisely lower the CG and meet the performance needs of this golfer.” – Josh Talge, Vice President, Titleist Golf Club Marketing

Specs & Pricing

The new Titleist T200 irons are priced at $143 per club and $999 per 7-piece set (steel).
